BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — A Twin Cities man is about to move out of a glass apartment that’s been his home at the Mall of America for the past month.

Forty-five-year-old Scott Jorgenson has been living on display at the Bloomington mall since March 18. On Saturday, he steps outside the 20-by-30-foot box for the last time.

Jorgenson has been walking, working out and eating healthy meals as part of a new project created by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota.

“The Human Do.ing” is part of the Blue Cross “do” campaign, aimed at getting Minnesotans to live healthier lifestyles.

Jorgenson weighed 254 pounds when he went into the box. His final weight will be announced Saturday.

Supporters can join Jorgenson that morning for his final walk in the mall.
